I am using Acrobat's Web Capture feature to convert html files to pdf files in batch.
But Web Capture doesn't support style sheet in html. As a result, when you use Web Capture to capture Adobe's home page, the font face and font size in the result pdf is different from what it is on the home page.
In the html, you have tow ways to define the font face and font size.
1. html way: font face="Arial" size=3>text here/font
2. style sheet way: font style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 12pt">text here/font>
Method 1 is supported by Web Capture, but you cannot set the font size in term of points, it's all relative size to the browser setting.
Method 2 is using style sheet, it allows you to defined the font size in points. But it is not supported by Web Capture.
I want to convert a simple html to pdf and maintain precise control on the font size, font face and font color. And I prefer to do it with Acrobat if I can.
Also, the font size, face, color will change dynamically, I cannot set the settings in Acrobat manually.
Can I do it? How?
Thanks a lot for your help.
